SKU: BLUE-FL21

Admire the intense colour before enjoying the plum cake and spices bouquet. Move to the plush, smooth, quintessentially fruit Merlot palate. Joyous. On a warmer day chill lightly, and pair it will lamb.”

History

Colonel William Light, founder of Adelaide and first Surveyor-General of South Australia, traversed our estate on 13th December 1837, when exploring the north-east of Adelaide. On this historic occasion, he named our town Lyndoch and the surrounding hills Barossa. The Barossa Colonel Light Monument, a life-size bronze statue of Colonel Light on horseback, and the iconic Barossa Manor commemorate the birthplace of the world-famous Barossa wine region on our estate. Generations of our winemakers have dedicated their work to this grand tradition, embodying our heritage of outstanding winemaking in every bottle.

This wine is named in honour of William Light’s partner Maria Gandy. They met in 1832 and travelled together to South Australia in 1836. Maria became one of Adelaide’s founding females and was the true first lady of Adelaide. The Maria Gandy Bicentennial Memorial in Thebarton, Adelaide is dedicated to her lifetime achievements
